The King Size Hurdle!

Major excitement this morning as I finished hand quilting a king size quilt!  I have to admit that I'm a little stunned.  This is the first (and hopefully last) king size mammoth that I have tackled.  Personally, I'm voting for smaller beds!

Since it is so nice and sunny, I took the quilt outside for some pictures. 

In other news....My oldest son went to his first dance.  He cleaned up nice!

And here's a picture of him with The Crazies invading! 



  1. Whoa! You hand quilted a king? I'm impressed. :D It's pretty, too.

  2. wow! Really? such tiny perfect stitches. I love this quilt. I love all of these colors together.

  3. I adore your the baptist fan design it's my all time favorite!
    Thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching and sharing your project!

  4. I admire your dedication in finishing up such a giant quilt. Definitely an accomplishment to savor.

  5. Your quilting is beautiful! As is your quilt. You should be proud of your new quilt. I love the colors!

    I'll be starting my first king-sized quilt after the first of the year - since I hand quilt, I'm curious on any tips/advice you have for hand quilting such a large quilt. Did you use a lap hoop or a frame?

  6. Wow! that is some amazing quilting. Great job on the finish. Very cute kids.

  7. Beautiful!! Thats impressive dedication to hand quilt one that big! The kids are adorable!!
